Thursday 16th June - Comedy Night
Our Comedy Night will be in the Village Hall on Thursday 16th June and is being sponsored by Dorset Wood Fired Pizza. Compered by the fabulous Tom Glover, there will also be performances from the super talented Dave Arnold and Suzy Bennett. During the interval, renowned Dorset Wood Fired Pizza will serve half a 12" pizza to each member of the audience.
David Arnold is a loveable Welshman who never fails to deliver a well-rounded and polished performance, one that has his audience laughing throughout. He is fast developing a reputation as one of the South Wests' brightest talents and is not to be missed.
Based in Plymouth, David performs regularly around the UK for some of the country's biggest promoters, as well as some notable festival appearances - including Volksfest, Boardmasters and Download. He has won critical acclaim in competitions such as So You Think You're Funny, Comedy Gladiators and the South Coast Comedian of the Year.
According to Edge Comedy in Exeter, Arnold has an 'enthusiastic, engaging and endearing style that is sure to wow any crowd with his tales of ex-girlfriends, lesbians and sheep'.
Eminent Banter describes him as 'Slightly camp and delightfully tongue-in-cheek'.
Plymouth Ho Ho Ho Blogspot commented, "Cheers of the night came for David Arnold. Yet again his stories went down a storm'
Former Butlins Redcoat and proud Devonian, Suzy Bennett ‘accidentally’ won an award on her 6th gig and has kept the laughs - and her accent - going strong ever since, performing around the UK as well as overseas.
She is the voice of the ‘PlymouthTrails’ Tour app and was recently named as one of the ‘50 Coolest people from Plymouth’ by the Evening Herald - after Dawn French and Wayne Sleep.
She has supported Russell Kane on tour and who described her as a 'Charm Bomb', has been feted by Metro and Chortle and was Winner of the Funny Women Award
Westcountry comedian Tom Glover is a 'firm audience favourite' (Chortle) with a set full of hilarious stories of family life and tales of living in the south west. Tom began his comedy career by making the finals of the South West Comedian of the Year competition and has gone from strength to strength ever since, most recently touring his award nominated debut show 'A Glover not a Fighter' at venues across the country. His first solo effort was nominated for Best New Show at the Leicester Comedy Festival before performing to packed rooms throughout it's Edinburgh Fringe run. In the same year Tom was also a finalist in the prestigious Petfringe Comedian of the Year, the biggest prize in comedy, and did tour support for TV favourite Stephen Bailey. Tom has developed a loyal following across the south west due to a series of long running MC residencies and has developed a knack of winning over any crowd with his tales of life on the outside and his observations on the minutiae of the everyday. And if that’s not your thing he also does funny accents and pulls silly faces.
